Just to bring this up to date, especially as I've just read the "Unsettling News" thread (non-sticky) which worries that the Nordic system is to be imposed in Scotland in the next few months. There's nothing currently going through the Scottish Parliament, so that now looks unlikely.

The crackdown on Edinburgh saunas was as a result of the personal policing ideology of Sir Stephen House, heid bummer of the single authority Police Scotland, rather than any change of heart by the SNP Government. House has announced his resignation due to other fuck ups by the Force, including the M9 deaths (where two people were left in a crashed car for three days after an incorrrectly-handled 101 call, and both died where at least one might have survived) and the death in custody of a man in Kirkcaldy, so we won't have to worry about him for much longer.

Jean Uruqhart is an Independent MSP who has taken up the reins on the topic of decriminalising prostitution, where the late, great Margo MacDonald laid them down. Please take the time to read her consultation document, and respond if you can.

My apologies, Amy, I should have thought.

SNP passes motion to Criminalise the Purchasing of Sex in Scotland

The SNP conference recently passed a motion to criminalise the purchasing of sex in Scotland. It doesn't sound like they are going to put it out to consultation as previously in which case that will become law.

Terrible news for Scotland and Scottish working girls.

I suspected they were going to follow suit with this. My blood really just ran cold here.

I believe it will be rejected again.  Men will end up moving out of Scotland, go abroad etc.  The liberal media/Parliament won't put up with the insane laws.

I'm so disappointed.

Looking at a summary of what was said by the SNP delegates and it looks like the usual paternalistic bullshit, shutting down of sex worker voices and total lack of understanding of the practicalities of what the law will actually do. Arguments made with no nuance, as usual.

Good for you. I got so mad and upset about the ignorant biased views of supporters of this I had to come offline a few days to keep my sanity. First Ireland, then Scotland - I don't think people in England should be too complacent about this, it's like a creeping nasty plague.

I've often got the impression that the SNP sort of ties in with the more puritanical views in parts of Scotland? There are so many sex scandals involving English, Tory MPs I don't think they'd dare changes things!

About two years ago I had a client who was on the know who warned me this was going to happen by hook or by crook NS was going to get her wish. :(  But in saying that girls will find a way around it, there is no way that they can sit outside your house 24/7 waiting for a client to turn up seeing as they wont be able to arrest you.
